    Contrast images of workers in Cuba on May 1st with the demonstrates of workers, led by women teachers in the U.S. colony of Puerto Rico and you can see why Cuba is a threat to the U.S.
  9. So terrible that . and . were pressured into canceling event. The war propagandists won’t give an inch. They know that there are people who want to hear a counter narrative. They try to stamp it out every where.

    On this day in 1855, William Walker (a wealthy American) led a mercenary army on a horrific campaign to conquer Nicaragua & ‘Americanize it’ by starting an English-speaking colony w/ legal slavery. Walker's campaign killed tens of thousands & left Central America devastated.

    After a NeoCon campaign, Leeds City Council cancels the ‘Media on Trial’ event at the City Museum on 27th May, where ex-UK Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford was one of the speakers. Whatever your view of the Syrian conflict this is another dark day for free speech in the UK.
